    sugarpea's Note:

    Everything a butter cookie should be and cute as a button. Before baking, four holes are made in these cookies so they look like big buttons. Unlike most other recipes this one uses brown sugar and a fancy edge made of turbinado sugar. They melt in your mouth.

      Really good cookies. Don't leave out the turbinado sugar (though they would still be very nice cookies) as it takes these out of the realm of just good. The sugar adds a wonderful crunch and they are so appealing with their little holes. Thanks for posting this; I will make them often.
